There will always be at least one result tree, but its contents may be
empty. see 2.4:

An implicit result tree is also created when the result sequence is empty,
provided that no xsl:result-document  instruction has been evaluated during
the course of the transformation. In this situation the implicit result tree
will consist of a document node with no children.

But you don't have to serialize the result tree to a file. Try <xsl:output
